University of New Haven
Center for Teaching Excellence

Where great minds think...differently.



The mission of the University of New Haven Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) is to  

  • offer programs and services that support faculty in facilitating student-centered courses and that encourage the growth of high-impact, innovative teaching practices; 

  • support faculty and programs in evaluating the effectiveness of their curricula and teaching;  

  • foster a culture of inclusive, reflective teaching through peer support and community building; 

  • promote faculty participation in scholarship on teaching and learning. 

These efforts ultimately work towards the larger goal of supporting University of New Haven students' success. 

We hope you will join us in conversations and collaborations around teaching and learning!
